- Apple's App Store may have a Federal anti-trust bull's-eye on it. And I still really, really hate my Mac, so I can't say I'm feeling bad about that.
- US Air Force considering strike on Sony after PlayStation 3 support for alternate operating systems disabled... (Well, I'm sure someone there at least joked about it... a little...)
Getting from here to there:
- Gainesville, Florida, recently celebrated a record-setting rate of 52% of automobiles yielding to pedestrians! How do we know this? They have a sign that keeps track!
- The author of Carjacked discusses automotive withdrawal.
Just... wow. (And probably not in a good way.)
- A study shows that Republicans are not only less likely to adhere to voluntary energy conservation standards, but when given feedback on their usage, are more likely to increase their consumption! Seriously, WTF?
- I guess one of my favorite things to say, "The most dangerous people are those who think they know more than they really do," is a corollary of the Dunning-Kruger Effect.
- A Canadian woman is suing her (I assume, former) wireless phone company, saying that its combined bills for all accounts at one residence led her husband to find out about her affair. Next thing you know, she'll be suing her (now ex-)husband for marrying an idiot. (You get a post office box for that sort of thing, dumbass!)
- Well, finally, a story about a total nutjob not from Florida: a Wisconsin woman was arrested for shooting people with a blow gun because she "liked to hear people say ouch."
